The Experience

We are an Italian family that run a non-profit art association and that can get an extra help with some repairing tasks. You can help with various activities that we have set aside during this year, but we can start with the renovation of the balcony railing, what do you think? If there is time, you can also be useful for carpentry and other activities at our association. And feel free to spend your free time by the sea or the countryside!

My experience with Cristiano and Margherita was excellent. They really made me feel at home. They cared about every detail and gave me the best possible care. The mugar is beautiful, you can visit it, learn about it and learn about the local culture. All amazing!

Cristiano and his wife Margherita are wonderful, kind, welcoming hosts. I enjoyed my stay with them and hope to see them again! I lived at their home in Palagiano and was treated like family there. They were kind enough to drive me to see many wonderful places in the Puglia region of Italy.
One note, I would not recommend this stay to those who are sensitive to tobacco smoke.
Overall, this was a lovely stay, and I feel like I experienced true family life in Puglia.

Hi Jenna, Thank you very much! We too had a good time with you and we always think of you. We hope to see you again soon! :)



Eu tive uma experiência fantástica com Cristiano e Margherita. Foi meu primeiro voluntariado pela Worldpackers e me surpreendi. Meus hosts são pessoas maravilhosas e amáveis, já chamo eles de tios e tenho um verdadeiro sentimento de família devido a forma como me acolheram. Eu tive uma imersão na cultura italiana, não só no idioma, mas em tudo, graças a paciência que tiveram comigo. Ahh, Cristiano é um verdadeiro chef de cozinha, me sentia num restaurante em todas as refeições. O trabalho é tranquilo e Margherita sempre me orientava. Tudo no projeto envolve arte. É FIGO.

Grazie a te Humberto! È importante per noi sapere che sei stato bene e che veramente l'esperienza da volontario qui, sia stata ricca di momenti da ricordare e magari da rivivere 😉. Il tuo aiuto è stato prezioso, sia per i consigli su come usare i social (speriamo di ricordarli tutti!), sia per i video che hai creato per il progetto e l'impegno del sitoweb... Sappiamo che non è semplice ricostruire anni di attività 😅😎 grazie per l'impegno che stai mettendo 💪 sei forte!



Mi experiencia con ZNSProject no podría haber sido mejor. Honestamente, fue mucho más allá de mis expectativas. Margherita y Cristiano te ofrecen su corazón y su casa desinteresadamente, con toda la hospitalidad del mundo. También es posible conectar con la cultura local participando de proyectos organizados por ellos, mientras se conocen muchos lugares de la zona.
Es una experiencia más que recomendable, sobre todo si también te interesa probar la gastronomía de Puglia. Gli italiani mangiano assolutamente tutto!!!
